    Proving that Vermontians truly have nothing better to do:

    Democrats in Vermont to Weigh Impeachment
    By DAVID GRAM, Associated Press Writer
    Tue Mar 28, 10:51 PM ET

    MONTPELIER, Vt. - Leading Democrats in Vermont plan to decide in April whether to urge state lawmakers to petition for
    President Bush's impeachment using a little-known provision in the rules of the U.S. House.

    Democratic committees in at least half of the state's 14 counties have passed resolutions calling for impeachment, citing a rule in "Jefferson's Manual," a book of parliamentary guidelines written by Thomas Jefferson that supplements U.S. House rules.

    Just wait until the people of Vermont find out how much it will 'cost' them to bring such charges.

    Jesus. They really have let the kooks take control. I'm telling you this is just to get back for Clinton, who ACTUALLY BROKE THE LAW. Time to put the big-boy pants on and go do grown-up things.

    Vermont has always been liberal. However, part of the reason Vermont has become so radical isn't the native Vermonters, but the transplants from New York City (like Howard Dean, for instance)
